Photographer's Note

Wat Montien

Dragons are commonly symbols of good luck or health in some parts of Asia, and are also sometimes worshipped.

But in Thailand, though it is often taken as such, dragons that can be seen at the corners of temples or forming stairway railings ornamentation are actually Naga. Within a mythological context, it refers to a deity assuming the form of a serpent with either one or many heads.

If you want to see a complete Naga image, please have a look at the workshop.
